False virus alert on "EasySuite USB Host-to-Host Data Bridge"?


Hello.

I'm using a USB file transfer cable/adapter to connect two computers: "EasySuite USB Host-to-Host Data Bridge"

When connecting, both computers recognize the adapter as a CD-rom with two files, one of them is Easysuite.exe.
Starting Easysuite.exe on both computers give them access to the disks at the other computer.

When scanning Easysuite.exe with F-Secure, one of the computers (not the other) reports a virus :


05 December 2011 09:13:53 - 09:14:14
Computer name: xxx
Scanning type: Scan target
Target: F:\

Result: 1 malware found
Gen:[email protected] (virus)
•    F:\EasySuite.exe Action: FAILED

Is this a known issue, or is it a false virus alarm?
I can not imagine that some virus has infected the adapter here, it seems to be totally read-only.
